Lycan will be on pre-oreder for the next 4 weeks. Pre-orders will be couriered out to clients on the 6th June 2018.
Customers doing pre-order frames do get free extras included in their kits and will also receive the all new FridayFPV Huggy Bear battery strap! This isn't a regular battery strap, keep an eye out for more details on this product to be released soon.
We will also be releasing details about new printed covers and camera protection options for Lycan in the next couple weeks. These prints will be available on the store for purchase or if you have access to a 3-D printer, the STL files will also be available for free download.
Lycan is our smallest, lightest and most aggressively accelerating 5.1" racer we have ever released!
The Lycan ULTX 5.1 is a 195mm true-X design, weighing in at 55grams with a titanium fastener pack or 60grams with the stainless steel fastener pack. This frame is extremely light and compact, allowing you to fly around your competition with very little room.
Lycan has been designed to be as light as absolutely possible while still offering really good protection to your camera and centre electronics stack. Simplicity and ease of maintenance were then the two, most important aspects to the frame we focused on.
We worked with team pilots Devon Barnett (aka. HolyHavok) and Jonatan Sanchez Echevarria (aka. Jonylito FPV) to develop this frame, this frame is purpose built for racing with the help and feedback of true race pilots. These guys wanted small, ultra-light and insane performance, you guys get small, ultra-light and insane performance.
(For the full story and prototyping phase of this frame see below)
We have had loads of comments from loyal customers about not wanting to wait the 4 week pre-order we run on first release for our frames! We do this to give ourselves a little extra time to make sure we get your order correct, mistakes do happen, especially when you are releasing a new product, we do our utmost to make sure mistakes don’t happen.
For you guys who cannot wait for pre-order and want Lycan right now, we have introduced pre-production. These frames are identical to the pre-order frames which will be released, without the chamfered edging and finishing of production frames.
These are the exact same frames our team pilots fly!
We will release a very limited number of these frames before we do our pre-orders.
If this option is for you keep in contact with us and up-to-date, to find out exact release dates. Obviously, loyal customers who truly believe in our products and what we do, get extras and a small discount when they take a pre-production frame from us.
